Wedding Mini

This is my very first mini album... my wedding album. We don't have many pictures because it was a simple and quiet wedding. We went to the registrar office in Edinburgh, 'dragged' 2 people of the street to be our witnesses and got married. This was July, 8 years ago.

I made the pages of the mini with the ATC die and used my favourite colour paint (turquoise) to colour the chest. After it was dry I used the Lyndy's Stamp Gang Moon Shadow mist to create a more vintage look. The chest is still a work in progress.. it needs some embellishments on the outside.

Materials I used are
Sizzix Bigz die - Artist Trading Card (656332)
Tim Holtz Paper Pad - Shabby Vintage
Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip - Tim Holtz Mini Paper Rosettes &  Upon A Time Alphabet
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations - Caged Bird (656634)
Paper Mache Treasure Chest
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber - Pool
Lindy's Stamp Gang Moon Shadow Mist - Tawny Turquoise
Prima E-line flowers
Martha Stewart Craft Punch - Classic Butterfly

    We stii didn´t get married, but when we do it will probably be something similar to your wedding... Have a great week! :)

  2. Your album and the chest are lovely Caroline, a great colour scheme too, its a great keepsake of your wedding. Maybe one day Ian and I will run away and get married this way :D
